“Thy drugs are quick. Thus, with a kiss I die!” Any takers on who said it? Let’s see what we know… Edited to add: I know you were all waiting with “bated breath” to see who said it, so I’ll let you know. It was Romeo. A lot of votes for Juliet, but she stabs herself. It’s Romeo who drinks the deadly potion. Regardless, I’m impressed by my Shakespeare followers! I feel like such a nerd right now.
Okay. Apothecary jars. Perhaps because I use mine a LOT and because I change them up a LOT, it’s the number one question I get from my readers. “What do I put in them?”
I don’t claim to have the answer, but I do have some suggestions. I just changed mine out again.
I got some inspiration from Nester who uses tons of “natural elements”–another reason I’m a fan–and scrounged around the house for everything I have. A potpourri mix, some shells from vacation, pinecones, feathers, and a little nest, of course.
This change came on the heels of my “winter” apothecary arrangement. The pine needles were getting a little dry. Plus, it was 50 degrees here yesterday. That’s a heat wave around here, people. Don’t think I wasn’t lookin’ around for my bathing suit!
